Potterville fails to pass ballot measure allowing marijuana businesses
Potterville voters chose not to reverse course on the city’s ban on marijuana businesses in Tuesday’s election.
The ballot measure was introduced by a group called the Eaton Cares Coalition. Their goal was to repeal Potterville’s ban on allowing cannabis facilities within city limits.
Despite organizers’ efforts, the proposal fell short by fewer than fifty votes. Had the measure passed, Potterville would have become the only community in Eaton County allowing recreational marijuana stores.
Potterville is one of nearly two hundred Michigan communities that bans recreational marijuana businesses within city limits.
Results are unofficial until they're certified by the Board of Canvassers in coming days.
